FOUNDER & OWNER
Greenwich Wood Products was founded in 2002 by Michael Hendershot. Fresh out of the University of Rhode Island, Michael started Greenwich Wood Products with the intention of creating aesthetically pleasing and functional products in wood and other interesting materials. He grew up on a small horse farm in Exeter spending his days making pinewood derby cars and has always had an interest in woodworking, agriculture, forestry and other old world skills.
Identifying an unfilled niche in the New England market, Michael elected to study furniture making and woodworking techniques with acclaimed furniture makers, boat builders, and accomplished RISD graduates before launching his own line of specialty architectural wood products in 2003.
